The Tycoon's Socialite Bride by Tracey Livesay
Series: In Love with a Tycoon #1
Published by Entangled Publishing, LLC Genres: Contemporary, Interracial
Pamela Harrington is sick and tired of living under her father’s thumb. Men see her as a stepping stone to her very influential and powerful father and her father has decided on who should be her husband without her say. So, as a convenience, Pamela decides to marry Marcus Pearson not only to stand up to her father; but, also as a way to protect her beloved women’s shelter.
Marcus Pearson is a self-made millionaire who wants revenge from the man who mistreated his mother. But because he is not from “old family money”, it has been difficult for him to network among the prestigious, exclusive members in real estate society. So when the opportunity presents itself in the form of Pamela Harrington, Marcus jumps at the chance to finally even the score.
Both enter into the marriage of convenience with their eyes open. However, they never expect to develop feelings for one another. Will their love stand the test of time? Or, will both continue to believe their desire is no more than physical attraction?
Tracey Livesay has done an excellent job with her debut novel The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride. Not only does the plotline consist of explosive sexual tension, it also contains tearful moments, evil villains, and non-stop conflict. The writing style is outstanding and flows at a smooth pace. Hooked from the start, I found myself rooting for Pamela and Marcus’ attraction for one another to blossom into a lasting relationship and for them to realize that dependence on each other is not a sign of weakness but in essence a strong foundation for an eternal unbreakable bond. I look forward to discovering more of Ms. Livesay’s stories.
